New reporting by the Washington Post about the shitshow at CPAC in the wake of a Herschel Walker campaign staffer’s accusation that chair Matt Schlapp had sexually assaulted him while the staffer was driving Schlapp back to his hotel following an event for Walker in October 2022 includes some interesting details such as alleged homophobic slurs by Schlapp when he was an exec at Koch Industries showing a possible guilty conscience over his true sexual desires and other various but non-specific allegations that he’s a total fucking asshole at the CPAC workplace.
What sticks out a bit more than the rest however is the part that says “In recent court filings, Schlapp has argued that the Walker staffer is proceeding anonymously to avoid scrutiny of his own record, which includes extremist commentary on a white supremacist blog and radio show more than a decade ago. The staffer has disavowed those remarks in interviews with The Post, which does not identify alleged sexual assault victims without their consent,” which we would take to mean that the accuser acknowledges that he said some shit but tried to wash his hands of it.
We went a little back and forth on this and decided not to identify the accuser from a tweet by Schlapp ally and MAGA scumbag Caroline Wren as we’re 99% sure, but not 100% that she named the accuser correctly. We would have tried to look into the comments and reprint them here, but ultimately does it really matter what kind of racist bullshit this guy probably really did say?
Is there anything out there that would make us think that Schlapp and the Walker campaign didn’t associate themselves with this guy because, rather than in spite, of his history as a white supremacist? Are we to somehow believe that Schlapp wouldn’t get drunk with a man who hates Jews when he would invite an Eastern European dictator who hates them too to speak at one of his fanfests? This is supposed to be some sort of defense for a credible accusation of sexual assault?
